so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

Even though the defense attorney stated that he sees this as a misdemeanor at worst, I imagine that there still may be a suspension involved. Considering that it seems like BWC has been making great progress, news like this is dispiriting to me.
I do have faith, however, that this staff will have the appropriate discussion with Campbell regardless of how this turns out from a legal standpoint and they will give him every opportunity to learn from it and even grow because of it. If it involves missed time, then hopefully BWC uses such time to reflect.

Why do you think there will be a suspension? Or is this similar to "I wasn't really high on Treadwell at first, but then I actually watched his highlight tape and now I think he's awesome."
I was actually in the process of revising a bit, but in summary of what I was going to finally say...
I really hope there isn't one, but I imagine much depends on the outcome. If the defense attorney is correct and ends up being much less than it appears in the article, then I doubt there would be.
Considering that the AnnArbor.com article was just update to read that he slid across a hood, then this is like a gentle breeze and best and hopefully exits quickly.
Even if it's exactly how it looks in the article, I highly doubt there is any suspension. Maybe more running or something, but no games missed. He slid across a hood, big deal.
would it have been ok if he was wearing the thor outfit while attempting said slide.
Wait: 600 block of Church at 2 a.m.? RICK'S! DAMN YOU RICK'S!!!
(Blogger alias: "Misopogon") This team is under construction. We thank you for your patience.
Home confinement (with academic credit), suspension while the team is not practicing, and benched through the kick-off of the Alabama game! Tough love.
This is not an assault charge. He slid his fat body over the hood of a car. I don't see how that warrants more than a 1-3 game suspension.
cost more than $1000? The owner should have BWC pay to fix the damages and take care of this in the civil context. It's not cool to do this to somoene's car, not matter if you are 132 or 332lbs, but in Fulmer Cup points, this is not a big deal.

BWC has really stacked the deck against himself. I know he didn't exactly win the lottery as far as defensive coaches go his first few years but dang!! I hope this is his last hurdle before embarking on at least an average senior season. He seems like a really good guy and I imagine this amounts to standard college guy drunk behaviour.

He's a college kid. Having fun. That's it. He's not a criminal.
The whole stuff about seatbelts in the OP seems much more appropriate now.
Only a 322 pound guy can make sliding accross a hood of a car expensive enough to be a felony.
Practice makes perfect. Unless you're the Buckeyes. Then you have to cheat.
If he actually had the coordination to get all 320 lbs into an actual attempt of a slide on the hood of a car he couldn't have been to intoxicated.
Drunk enough to do something stupid thinking its a great idea, but not drunk enough to fail miserable in the process.
They just usually occur in the basement of Rick's
That is it?! For a second I thought he maybe stole laptops from DPS, got a DUI multiple times, got into a fight with a fraternity at a hotel, sold mechandise to a tattoo artist in exchange for free tattoos, covered up a decade long pedophile affiliated with the university who molested boys in campus facilities or something.
Because I don't see a sorority girl getting busted for the same act.
Either that or he needs to get a smaller set of keys.

If most (not all) of us did that, the cop wouldn't have heard it and therefore not made an arrest.

picturing this. My wife sees no humor in such a crime, but damn, I'm picturing it and laughing nonstop!
Some of those cops have nothing better to do... I got 3 open intox's while at UM because the cops would hide behind the trees on our street and wait for us to cross the street between house parties.
I really would not have lasted a year as a football player... and I considered myself a normal college student.

What did the cop do wrong? If some large dude jumped on my car and fucked it up I would want something to be done about it.

I'd demand that he pay for it. Then let it the fuck go. It's college.
No excuses. Play like a champion.

You go back and forth to grab more beers... you'd think there be more important things to do than stop 21 year old from crossing the street with a beer. You sound like you were never 21 or where just a very boring 21 year old.
Hoke to BWC: what you did was stupid and reckless. Just make sure you do it on the field to Bamas Oline.

You want him to slide across Bamas O line and dent them while under the influence of alcohol? idk about that

I have done worse outside of Ricks. Which is clearly what prompted this Dukes of Hazzard move. Stupid story. Stupider arrest.

I can't help but wonder about the Photoshop or GIF potential here. Surely there is enough skill and creative genius among the members here to conjure something up. For some reason, I am envisioning the cover of the movie "Boyz N The Hood" being GIF-crashed or photobombed by BWC. Anyone?
A dented car hood with Ohio's logo on it.
"Mattison must break you. Jake Ryan is his tool."
This is ridiculous. If he gets suspended for this, it will be even more stupid than the arrest.
#Go Blue !!!!!
Definitely watched super troopers just prior to this happening
Yes, sliding over the hood of a car is a felony and (insert breaking political scandal here) is no big deal.

now that the A2 police are cracking down on car hood sliders. It's been a real worry to us over on the west side of town; most of us are staying up late with shotguns and baseball bats, ready to defend our car hoods from marauding would-be sliders.
According to this article:
Also at least he is starting out the year crushing something... eh? eh?
thats all there is to this story?...Geez
Not the worst thing in the world. That being said, Will will not be a huge impact on the team anyways.
I would say he has the potential to be the MOST impactful player on our defense.
Agreed the guy is a senior and can barely bench more than his body weight.
You know a lot about his weight room numbers, huh? Please, share with us. Also, when you say he can barely bench his body weight, are you saying he can barely put up 322lb once, or he can barely rep at 322? Or are you making a bold statement off of one tweet you read out of context?
Oh, the latter? Thought so. Don't be a dick.
His one rep max is 370..not great for a 330 pound dude. Hey I hope he has a great year, but if people are actually expecting that, well I'm pretty dumbfounded as to why. What has he shown to suggest he's going to be anything more than a serviceable DT? I agree that it would suck for him to be suspended just because we need depth at that position, but people need to accept that this kid isn't the monster we all thought coming out of high school.
And he should of course make restitution for every penny the repairs cost. But unless he bellowed "Imma gonna fuck that hood up!" before he slid over it, the word malicious seems ridiculously inappropriate here. If Will Campbell truly wanted to act maliciously toward a car, it would end up with far more than a dented hood.
I guess since the prosecutors struck out with Josh Furman, they figured they might as well try again with another player.
He'll play come the 1st of September. Maybe some harsh summer workouts, nothing more. It sucks for the person whose car was, I can only imagine destroyed, no doubt, but they'll survive and so will Big Will's Michigan football career.
Only our safeties or undersized receivers should be permitted to attempt such stunts, not defensive linemen. The more svelte guys would either clear the car in a single leap or otherwise bounce off with no damage to the car.
Hoke is going to ultimately deal with this more harshly then a lot of what I am reading on here. Will is not of legal drinking age. That's the first problem and it is no small thing.
I wouldn't be surprised to see him not make that Dallas trip or worse.

I bet you one thousand MGoPoints he goes to Dallas. I'll even give you 2-1 odds.
